Maybe a day.
So, we'll finish the plane by then.

It was a good idea but maybe we can't make up for what we did.
Maybe we're the last ones left.
We're not the last ones left.
I know we're not.
That isn't it.
That, uh It can't be.
Food's ready.
Take a break.
MAN: Hello? Hello? Are you Is this Is someone there? Please, if you're there, we could really use some help.
- You copy? - Hey, hey, hey, hey.

We copy.
Oh, man.
Oh, thank God.
It's alright.
Everything's gonna be alright.
What's your name? Logan.
Well, hey, Logan.
We're here.
Why don't you tell me where you are? [SHOVELS SCRAPING.]
- - WOMAN: Logan, get your ass down here.
We've searched every inch of this shit hole.
It ain't here.
So either you tell us where it is or the next hole we dig will be for you.
Fear the Walking Dead 5x08 Is Anybody Out There? GRACE: Alicia? Alicia? Water's almost out.
We're gonna need to make a move pretty soon.
Thank you.
- For what? - For getting the kids.
I should've done that a while ago.
You didn't even know they existed till yesterday.
I didn't look.
You crashed a plane and found them right away.
I've been doing this for months now and never did.
It's clean.
Alicia, you're going to be okay.
You don't know that.
No, but you don't know that you won't be.
And right now, with that siren, what's coming is a hell of a lot more dangerous than whatever radiation was in that blood that got on you.
We didn't lose them.
Any idea where else we could take them? The truck stop is the only thing for miles.
No, that's too close.
We can't risk them swarming the plane.
We're too close as it is.
Alright, we're gonna keep leadin' them away.
How long until it's ready? More time than we've got, Morgan.
But we've got the plane radio running.
Just trying to raise Sarah and Wendell to let them know we're coming.
You think they'll hear it? Strand got Al's message about Skidmark.
I like our chances.
And John and Dwight anything from them? June? They're still out of range.
Okay, you keep working on the plane.
We'll just catch up to you as soon as we can.
You okay? [SIGHS.]
A nuclear plant is melting down, but I did just have a hot shower, so there's that.
Hey, we gotta keep movin'.
- I'm really startin' to hate that sound.
- GRACE: Me, too.
But once it stops, that's when we're in real trouble.
There's gotta be somewhere we can take them.
There is.
Come on.
You wanna go look for him, don't you? More than anything.
But if we don't finish the plane, we won't be able to take off when it gets back.
Do you think he'll get back on his own? I know he's trying.
But do you think he'll make it? Hmm.
I've seen a lot of bad, Dylan.
I know you have, too.
But you need to know that that is not all that there is.
It can't be.
There's gotta be good, too.
Otherwise it just doesn't add up.
And since we haven't seen a whole lot of the good lately, I think we've got some comin' our way.
Yeah, I think we do, too.
Come on, something work.
Just work! - [KEYS JINGLE, CLATTER.]
- Hey, we gotta keep lookin'.
I know.
Does anybody copy? I repeat, does anybody copy? We still must be outta range.
This one'll work.
You didn't even try it.
I don't have to.
See? My luck, your determination, we're gonna make this thing work yet.
Come on.
ALICIA: I shouldn't have led them away from the treehouses.
I know it doesn't make any sense.
I know they're dead, but I I couldn't kill any more of them.
You have nothin' to feel sorry for.
When we, um when we get outta here, when we get back there's something I wanna, um the exercises you seen me doing, they're not just about fightin'.
They're about protectin' yourself and protectin' other people, your enemies, even, and they helped me.
I think maybe they could help you.
Get down.
Sit tight, don't move, and, hopefully, they'll keep following that sound all the way to the plant.
As soon as they clear that first ridge, we double back to the plane.
Morgan The klaxon.
GRACE: The containment structure.
We gotta go.
We gotta go! [ENGINE STARTS.]
Come on.
- Damn it.
- Come on.
Let's go.
Luciana, you better be getting close on that plane, 'cause we're comin', and we're not gonna be alone.
How's that runway lookin'? WENDELL: You could eat a Denver omelet off it, it's so clean.
Somethin' tells me I'm not gonna have much of an appetite after this.
You got this.
Mind movin' your rig, sweetheart? Nice shiner.
Call me "sweetheart" again, I'll give you another one to match.
I assume you're here 'cause you want this place back.
You're in luck.
We're just leavin'.
What happened to takin' back what's yours? I came lookin' for somethin' that was mine.
It wasn't here.
So we're movin' on.
Not before you do somethin' for me.
My friends, you remember, the ones who crashed the Goddamn plane, who nearly got themselves killed 'cause they thought they were saving your ass? Well, they rebuilt that sucker and they're flyin' in here tonight, and I need to find a way to light up that runway.
Figure we line up your little convoy there, hit the brights.
It might just do the trick.
You're asking me for my help.
We went over this already not how I operate.
See that rig? Belonged to your partner Clayton.
My brother and I, we stole it.
He was out there in the world, just tryin' to help people with it, and we took it anyway 'cause that's how we operated.
Never met the man.
Not a day goes by I don't regret what we did.
Every time we drive it, read what he wrote, that shit gnaws at ya, Logan.
You walk away from this, from helpin' people who really need it, you'll spend what's left of your miserable life trying to make up for it, believe you me.
You owe it to us.
And him.
That's a nice speech.
But unlike my partner, I'm still above ground.
And not sticking my neck out, it's kept me breathing.
I happen to like breathing.
Good luck at the runway.
How much farther you think we gotta go? 15, 20 miles.
Oh, no, no, no, no, no.
- Come on.
Oh, no, no, no.
We got a full tank.
The gas is goin' bad.
I saw it with the other cars, you know, before and after I got to this place.
That's it, ain't it? Aw, shit.
Oh, no.
JUNE: John? John, are you there? Yeah, I'm here, sweetheart.
You must be getting closer.
We are.
Or, I mean, we were.
John? I imagine we're both lookin' at the same thing right now.
And, uh, we're not givin' up or anything, but I might not make it back in time.
John, where are you? I'll come.
It's too far.
Just tell me.
Is the plane workin'? We're getting there.
We're waiting for Morgan and Alicia.
John, where are you? We're gonna do our best to get back there, but I need you to promise me somethin'.
You promise me that you'll take off whether I'm there or not.
From the moment I laid eyes on you, I knew I'd found my reason to live.
I want you to always have a reason, too, whether I'm there or not, okay? - [STATIC.]
- You hear me? John You live, June.
You find somethin' to live for, and you live.
You promise me.
Come on.
I promise.
I love you, June.
I love you, baby.
John! I love you, baby.
I didn't make it right for ya for her, or for anyone.
This is the, uh, last thing Sherry wanted, and I'm I'm sorry, John.
Maybe that note wasn't the only thing she left you.
W-What do you mean? How far do you think her car is from here? June, are you okay? It's blowing towards us.
Quick, gather all the kids.
Wind's changed direction.
MORGAN: Get everybody on the plane now.
Morgan, where are you? We're closer than you think.
Hey, you you ready? Almost.
But, Morgan, John is not here yet.
Then we're not gonna leave, not until we have to.
But we're gonna need some help down here.
WENDELL: Three flares? I thought you searched the Mill.
Logan and the dick squad tore the place up.
Looked like they dug halfway to China.
That's all they left? What the hell were they looking for? Well, it sure as shit wasn't for flares.
We can't go down like this, Wen.
I'm not losin' at the game of life, not this round.
That plane is gonna land in one piece if I have to blow sunshine out my asshole to make it happen.
Save the sunshine.
We got company.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Dan the Man? [CHUCKLES.]
Hey, Skidmark.
- Look like ol' Skiddy missed you.
- He got fatter.
You left a lot of tuna.
- Came to get your cat? No.
I heard you on the radio.
Brought some things from the warehouse that I thought could help.
That's real thoughtful of you, but unless you got stadium lights in that trunk, it's not gonna be enough.
Come on.
Help me unload before it gets dark.
JUNE: Go get more ammunition, as much as you can carry.
Go! Am I okay to use this? We're all minutes away from being covered in radioactive dust.
It'll be fine.
Ready? Yeah.
Morgan, we got the engines running.
- We can't wait much longer.
- Okay.
We'll keep them off as long as we can.
We're gonna have to fly towards that.
- Just glad I'm not doing it alone.
- Yeah.
- All the kids are buckled in.
- You got them on the plane.
- We still have to take off.
- We will.
She'd be proud of you, you know.
Not just of me.
We got this.
- AL: Morgan.
- Yeah? We need to leave now or we're not gonna have enough fuel to get us over the mountains.
Everybody ready? We can do this.
Okay, guns up.
On my count.
Three, two, one.
I made John a promise.
This wasn't it.
- We have to get on that plane.
- He'll be here.
- We still got time.
- We don't.
Okay, go.
- On the plane.
Everybody, go! - Come on.
MORGAN: Strand, Al, when I say "go", hit it.
- Get on.
Get on.
- John.
Dwight! Come on! [GROWLING CONTINUES.]
Everybody's on the plane.
Go, go! [GUNSHOTS.]
We need to lose the dead weight now.
Pull the pin.
Gentlemen? - Damn it.
- Gentlemen? [GRUNTS.]
Three, two, one, go! - We're gonna have to bank hard.
- Right or left? - Right.
Alright, alright.
Hold tight! Okay.
We're alright.
We're alright.
We got this.
We got this.
- Are you okay? - Yeah.
Hey, I didn't wanna leave.
I know.
I know.
Hey, hey, hey.
Look at that.
Second-prettiest thing I've seen since the end of everything.
- Okay.
- Alright.
- Alright.
- Okay.
Was that hard enough? I think it was, yeah.
You were right, though.
We couldn't just pick up a walkie and say we wanted to help.
That's what got us Logan.
We had to show them we wanted to help.
What do we do now? We're gonna make it back.
Then we do what I said.
We keep looking for people to help, but we make sure we're livin', too.
How do we do that? I don't know.
That's what we're gonna have to figure out, Alicia.
Hold on tight, okay? Just keep holding tight.
MORGAN: Grace? Here.
I fixed your stick.
Did I do something wrong? It was the only way.
No, no.
Uh, it's just you're not the first pers Thank Thank you.
Is he gonna be alright? I think so.
I wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for him.
No way.
And Sherry's car? Yeah, we found it.
Thought it was gonna be a dead end.
But then I saw somethin'.
Made me understand that there's two ways to look at everything.
When that walkie went out, I thought I would never speak to you again, and I realized there was so much I hadn't said.
I-I can't keep going with those things unsaid.
I can't.
Well Couldn't find a Black Jack? [LAUGHS.]
I know this doesn't make sense considerin' the state of the state, but, June would you do me the honor of becoming my wife? [CHUCKLES.]
- I don't know.
- Yes.
- Yeah? - Yes.
Well, then, before we die, let's put this on your finger.
I love you so much.
I love you, too.
SARAH: Bro, you copy? Just fuelin' up down here, sis.
You good? We're good.
Just a few more strings, and we're set.
Copy that.
Do you think they'll see it from up there? - We'll know soon enough.
- Mm-hmm.
Hand me that.
Sarah, Wendell, do you copy? SARAH: We're here, Vic.
Just buttonin' a few things up.
Keep your eyes peeled.
Alright, music to my ears.
The sooner the better.
We're running uncomfortably low on fuel.
You guys have to see this.
Keep 'em lit, guys.
We're bringing her around.
SARAH: Solid work, bro.
We're wrapping up down here, and then we'll head to you.
Oh, shit.
That's not good.
We're almost out of fuel.
Sarah, Wendell, what happened? Wendell? Wen, do you copy? What was that? Wendell! [GRUNTS.]
Does anybody copy? Hey! Sarah, I just wanna say, if I don't make it out of this, you make the worst beer I ever tasted in my life, but I still love you anyway.
What are you doin', Wen? This was better than the Marines.
Wen?! We're coming.
Hang on.
Hey, we need those lights now! [WALKER GROWLING.]
Do you copy?! Sarah?! Wendell?! Shit.
Alright, we're flyin' blind.
We're comin' down whether we like it or not.
Everyone, hold on! - Where is it?! - Please, God.
Nose up, nose up! Shit! Whoa! [SCREAMING.]
We done? [LAUGHS.]
We're all still standin'.
That you, Mo-Mo? Alright.
- Mo-Mo? - Yeah.
This is Grace.
Nice to meet you.
- Morgan.
- Daniel.
There she is.
Nice to see ya on terra firma.
Thanks for givin' us a place to land.
Ah, well, you can thank Dan the Man for that.
He's the one that supplied the lights.
Althea, I told you not to show my interview to anyone.
Guess I owe you some more cat food, then.
Good to see you.
I remember you said we would never set foot on that tin can again.
Well, I'm more inclined to say that now.
I hate that thing.
But we did it.
- We did.
And congratulations, you two.
Thank you.
I'm gonna go throw up now.
DYLAN: Luciana.
I forgot to give this back to you.
Thanks for letting me read it.
It really helped me a lot.
Who's hungry? Got some busted-up vending machines need some raidin'.
Do it.
Daniel? [LAUGHS.]
I It's been so long.
- So good to see you.
- You, too.
I'm sorry about what happened.
I am, too.
We're trying to make better things happen.
Daniel, this is Dwight.
He's a friend we met.
Friend needs a haircut.
Daniel used to be a barber.
- I'm still a barber.
I may take you up on that.
- CHARLIE: Daniel.
- Hey.
Thought I'd never see you again after you left.
My daughter Ofelia, she's been gone for a while now, but I couldn't let her go, couldn't let myself say goodbye, but now I could.
So I'm back.
And I brought all the good records with me.
I was wrong.
We all are at times, right? - [BOTTLES CLINK.]
- Cheers.
That crazy one down there.
Hey, sis, this beer still tastes like shit.
- Cheers to that.
Keep drinking.
- It gets better.
- Oh, my God.
WOMAN: Do you copy? I repeat, do you copy? Yeah.
Yeah, we copy.
Who is this? Was that your plane that flew over? Yes, it was.
Tell me who you are.
I heard you before.
On the radios.
Saw your boxes on the road.
Then why didn't you say anything? I didn't think it was for real.
But I saw your plane, and I know it is now.
I could use your help.
- We're - [FEEDBACK.]
Hello? Hello? Do you copy? LOGAN: Sorry to interrupt, but we need to chat.
Too little too late, Logan.
That's fair.
What are you doin' here? You might want to listen to me if you plan to help that woman on the radio.
I have a proposition.
You gotta be kidding.
Hear me out, now.
What's the proposition? There's a reason you all needed a plane to cross those mountains.
Yeah, because you lied.
Because it was the only way to get there.
The hurricane, the general wear and tear of this world, people can't get to where they need to get to anymore, and it's only gonna get worse.
Still waitin' on that proposal, chief.
Clayton knew it was gonna be a problem.
He saw it comin'.
He did somethin' about it.
He set some people up to cultivate a resource to help rectify the situation.
What the hell are you talking about? Gasoline.
It's goin' bad.
And that place Clayton had he wrote down the location in his journal.
I thought I might be able to find it at that Mill, but I was wrong.
I believe you may have it.
LUCIANA: We have it.
If you give me the journal, I can take you there.
How do we know this isn't a trap? Yes, why the sudden altruism? Why not bring your convoy and try to pry it from us like you did the River Mill? "A", that convoy would kill me and all of you if they knew I was here.
And, "B" I got shit I gotta make up for, too.
You're saying we should trust you.
I'm saying if you want to help anybody ever again, you're gonna actually have to get to them.
Soon enough, you won't be able to.
You want to help people? Help me find it.
Or they're gonna beat us to it.
